High Rise Training Exercise By Fire Service In Staffordshire
Staffordshire Fire & Rescue service have carried out a training exercise at a high rise block of flats
They were joined at Stanhope House in Tamworth by members of West Midlands Ambulance and Staffordshire Police.
Heart's told the major incident training exercise had been planned for months, and was not a retaliation to the recent Grenfell tower fire in London.
The incident was staged on the roof of the building, which was 15 floors high. It tested the firefighter’s ability to quickly reach the fire and operate the dry riser system within the building. This is a pipe system which allows water to be pumped to where it is needed and connected to a hose.
The incident commander, Station Manager Martin Weaver, instructed the crew manager to set-up a bridgehead two floors below the incident. This area was used to prepare crews with breathing apparatus before they approached the roof.
Heart spoke to Toby Wilson from the service after the team had had a de-brief.
The sister of a man who died after he was arrested in Nuneaton has told Heart she's scared her family will never find out what happened to him.
The campaign group who fought for new inquests into the deaths of 21 people in the Birmingham Pub Bombings say they won't now go to the hearings.
